How are Hotel Accidents Caused?
Hotels are usually very large properties that are comprised of many different amenities. The staff and management that works at these hotels are required to maintain the property regularly and ensure there are no hazards present. If a hotel fails to maintain the safety of the property, guests can become seriously injured and face a lifetime of consequences. There are a number of different possibilities when it comes to hotel accidents, including the following:
- Elevator accidents
- Escalator accidents
- Sidewalk accidents
- Gym equipment accidents
- Parking lot/garage accidents
- Accidents due to inadequate security
- Inadequate lighting
- Unsanitary conditions
- Stairway accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
How Can I Prove That a Hotel was Negligent?
In hotel accident cases, just like in all other premises liability cases, you are required to prove that there were dangerous conditions present, which ultimately resulted in your injuries. The requirement that you must prove negligence is referred to as fulfilling the burden of proof. There are a variety of ways that you can fulfill the burden of proof but it is important to note that you should start preserving evidence immediately. Some forms of evidence that are quite helpful in your case can include photos, surveillance footage, and witness testimony. It is important to notify hotel management as soon as an accident occurs so they know about the incident and that someone became injured on their property.
If you have been seriously injured in a New York City hotel accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial burdens that you have faced as a result of your accident. This can include compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, decrease in quality of life, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.
